      I know every time I'm there I pass by the bullfighting spot on the way South from the airport - I think it's in the Marina area. The sign says fights are like every Wednesday or something...the day may be off but it's once a week for sure. I don't know what months they do it though...sorry I guess I'm no help on this...lol

          Bullfights in Puerto Vallarta Mexico

          Well depending on how nice you want to be to the guys, there are strip clubs in town - I'm sure some of my male guests can do a review...lol

          We went last time I was down there... it's a whole different kind of experience.

          I have no idea why I agreed to even go... I found it to be horrible. I can't even explain how bad it was. There was lots of cheering and partying going on but all I could focus on was the poor lil bull. Ahhh it brings back icky memories. We ended up leavig because of my whining.

          So if it's an al guys event I say go for it. I wouldn't go though.

            Do the bulls get hurt? I always thought it was the matador that was in danger, but I've never been so I don't know how it works . . .

              I agree, I didn't have any desire to go to one either. I think it's a horrible thing to do to these animals. In fact Cain didn't even want to ride the horses in Cabo because he didn't like the fact that they were in the sun and people were riding them up and down the beach all day long. (I was holding onto the hopes that they rotated the horses or gave them breaks)

                I feel the same way Tammy. I can't stand seeing animals treated badly.

                For the bullfighting.....

                make sure they know what they are getting into. I have never been to one, nor will I ever go, but I know people who have. The fights are very bloody, gory and the bull ends up dead. A friend of mine who went said that by the middle of it quite a few people left and more than a few were in tears. Including some men.

                I realize that bullfighting is a tradition in some senses, but when they do it in tourist areas it is just there to make money and put on a show for the gringos. If they are ok with watching a bull getting stabbed repeatedly, tortured with spears and ultimately killed, I say go for it.

                i think bullfighting is cruel and so unfair...the matadors are given all these advantages to toruture and kill the bulls...

                i would never go...i think it is horrible.
